The load changes depending on the gear. More load may need more ignition retard.

How could I determine the value to retard? Is there and number should I base the retard % on? What would the effect or advantage from retarding the ignition on each gear? Is it possible to see some cracker or popping during gear shift by doing this?

The default values should be used in most situations. Your tuner will know if it something that should be altered.

Noted. Basically I would like to have more knowledge on the Flashpro Manager. I spend time to read the Flashpro help content and walk through the software itself. I think it would be more satisfying to know what the tuner is doing rather than leave everything to the tuner. Thank You.
